WHAT IT SHOWS: In the past few years, Tidal surge – water levels rising significantly above the tide levels that astronomy predicts - has begun to affect the city as much as twice a day, resulting in frequent flooding of residential and business areas.

The tidal flood inundated many places causing great damage to inhabitants.
